News of the PlayStation Network’s imminent return, plus an incentive package to woo back alienated consumers, is correlated with the price increase.
Well it's not as if it would fall
Sell that Sony stock to roll in the money good Sony is starting to regain some of that money it lost.
Um, when a company stock trades, those are shares owned by other people. It's not like Sony makes money off their share price. The stock price is merely a representation of what the market thinks the company is worth at a certain point in time. And these fluctuations weren't even that severe. Considering every Japanese stock has been volatile since the Earthquake, and Japanese electronics company's have been extra volatile with slowing demand for things like flat screen TV's and what not (look at Sharp's recent earnings warning) Sony's price swing really wasn't out of the ordinary, and now it's reversed. So much for those knee jerk, "the sky is falling" articles we were seeing regarding this minor price dip.
im just glad to hear all this good news and cant wait to get back with my fellow gamers to see how they have been through this crisis....sony u r the best..thank you for your hard work
So what do we do about all the other redundant "Company Stocks for Sony are Plummeting!!" articles then?
After E3 it will skyrocketed.
PS3 is Dooomed!!! for the 5th time I think...
It was the bow that did it. lol 7 seconds= +7 points Anyways....can't wait to bust out some socom 4 co op this coming weekend! Woot! Does anyone know if there is a way to party up in matchmaking for Socom? I wouldn't know because I haven't tried yet, and would like to play with my bros for some Brocom...lol
I don't think you can party up yet. That's something they have said will be patched in eventually, but you can join a friend's game. A friend and I played some the day before PSN went kablooie. It's a blast.
Awesome! I hope to do the robot over someone's dead body very very soon.
Never underestimate the power of apoligize... lol
I think you mean "aporagize" lol Edit: Bubbrs for Bratman...he understands, lol
Actually, I think he really meant "apologies" in the first place. ;)
Actually, i think Keiser was making a joke about how a Japanese person would pronounce the word apologize. (;
@ bratman I'm aware that was Keiser's intention. I just didn't want to comment on it. ;)
Do guys remember an article saying Sony PlayStation 3 was going to die in 2012? Well...i guess that little prediction is starting to look a bit foolish already.
I remember that news. It's x360 site who wrote that article -_-
Yeah,i mean i didnt understand how people with multiple accounts can sue Sony to bits. Also Sony has a slew of ips schedule for 2012 and the ngp technically arrives next year so...i just dont understand why would they even think of something like that taking place.
they mean xbox360 will die , that was a mistake... kinect is the future of the xboox360 so it's dead already..
7 seconds later... boom sony's on top again
but i taught ps3 is teh dooomzed lolzzz???
The ps3 is doomed on any given day /s
I think they did the right thing. Cant say the same for General Motors.
NO no but the countless pointless articles told us that Sony was "teh doom" seriously though who ever believed this little outage was going to be the end of Sony's gaming division is an idiot.
I keep hearing its online in japan already. they need to flip that switch already for everyone dammit!! I've had socom 4 with the sharpshooter all week & it's driving me nucking futs. thank god for RDR to keep me busy!
B-But teh Sony's deadz! Stocks downz, stocks downz! :o
In a way this hack was kind of a good thing for Sony,because now they found out there weak points and have gone back and redone everything.Though these days of not being able to log in have sucked I know it's for a better cause
what would i do without you sony playstation
great news all around Sony stocks back up and Bin Laden's dead.
Wow i am just glad that soon PSN will be back.
i want portal 2 on my pc d****t, hurry psn i'm counting on u
"Sony Corp has won over some gamers by offering free access to its PlayStation Network". I don't remember having to pay to access the Playstation Network before. Where's a facepalm emoticon when you need it...
